Extend cables for the GX Touch 50 display ?

Hi, I would like to place the GX Touch 50 display about 5 to 8 meters away from the Cerbo GX.

Can I use a standard hdmi extension cable ? Are there any compatibility specifications to be met e.g. hdmi version 1.4 or 1.3 ?

According the website the USB port is only used as power source. Can I use a external USB power supply for the GX Touch 50 display too ?

Thanks for your help.

I added 10ft extensions from Walmart to both the HDMI and USB to the Cerbo GX. It worked out great. You will need a HDMI adapter and a USB male to USB female.
